Overnight Oats

Our breakfast of choice the last week has been this recipe for overnight oats. It is packed with healthy goodness. I tried it first with jsut regular rolled oats and it tasted a little gritty to me so I got the thickest rolled oats I could find. They were in the bulk section at our grocery store. And it solved the problem. We have tried this lots of ways and every way has been really good. My favorite so far is the Almond Mango.

Overnight Oats
1/2 C thick rolled oats
1/2 C plain yogurt
2/3 C milk- we used almond milk
1 T chia seeds

Mix all ingredients in a wide mouth pint sized jar and put in the fridge overnight. You can also put the extras in the night before or the morning.

Almond mango- Add 1/2 c fresh mango, dash of almond extract, 1 tsp honey
Vanilla triple berry- 1/2 c frozen triple berries, contents of 1/2 vanilla bean scraped, 1 tsp honey
Blueberry cream- 1/2 C blueberries, 1 tsp agave
Banana maple nut granola- 1/4 c maple nut granola, 1/2 banana, chopped, 1 tsp agave

The possibilities are endless!
